Hello Crochet Lovers!

Today, I’m excited to share with you a personal project that transformed my wardrobe a bit– the Pouch Pocket Mini Skirt. Like many of you, I found myself often reaching for the comfortable leggings in my closet. But there comes a time when one craves a bit of variety, something as cozy as leggings but with a touch more elegance and flair. That’s how the idea for the Pouch Pocket Mini Skirt was born – a perfect blend of comfort and chic style that you can create too! This crochet creation is a joy for anyone who, like me, values comfort without compromising on style. I’m delighted to offer this pattern, absolutely free for size Small, as a token of gratitude to my fellow crochet enthusiasts.

About the Pattern

Difficulty: Intermediate. While it’s a fun challenge, this pattern is designed to be approachable for those looking to enhance their crochet skills.

Design Details: The skirt features a snug high waistband and a body adorned with the textured spider stitch, combining both comfort and contemporary style. Its central pouch pocket adds a unique twist, offering both functionality and a fashionable edge.

Materials You’ll Need

Yarn: I used DROPS ALASKA, 100% wool, in color 45, but you can use any yarn with similar characteristics.

Hook Sizes: 3 and 5 mm.

Other Essentials: This includes a 2.5 cm button, yarn needle, scissors, measuring tape, and stitch markers.

Gauge

Gauge: Aim for 7 spider sts and 14 rows to create a 10 cm square, ensuring your skirt fits just right.

Spider Stitch

This engaging intermediate-level stitch offers a unique texture, adding charm and intricacy to the skirt.

Chain an even number of chains

Row 1: Single crochet in the second chain from the hook, chain 1, single crochet in the same chain as the first single crochet, skip the next chain then single crochet, chain 1, single crochet in the next chain. Repeat to the end of the row putting the last single crochet, chain 1, single crochet, in the last chain.

Row 2: do not chain 1, single crochet, chain 1, single crochet in the first chain 1 space, continue placing a single crochet, chain 1, single crochet in each chain 1 space.

Repeat step row until the fabric reaches the desired length.

Pattern Notes

Begin by crocheting the waistband using half double crochet stitches. Next, proceed to the main body of the skirt, working in spider stitches for a textured effect. Finish the lower edge with another band of half double crochets for a neat border. Lastly, crochet a separate pocket and attach it to the front of the skirt. The design is completed with buttons along the back side of the skirt for added detail and functionality.
